School stabbing leaves one teen dead, second injured

It's the first homicide on New York City school grounds since 2014, when a fight between two 14-year-old boys ended with one stabbed to death outside Intermediate School 117 in the Bronx.

A student is dead and a second is in critical condition after a stabbing at a Bronx school, according to WPIX. But he didn't specify why, Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said Thursday.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina said parents have a right to expect their kids will come home safely at the end of the school day. It escalated today after some back and forth within the classroom, ' Boyce said.

Cedeno lunged at McCree with his stainless steel switchblade, stabbing and slashing the victim's chest and torso, police said.

Luz Albrego claims officials at Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation did nothing over the attack last May caught on cellphone video - and that one teacher even denied it ever took place on campus.

The 18-year-old, who allegedly stabbed his fellow classmates has been identified as Abel Cedeno, and the victims were identified as Matthew McCree, 15, and Ariane LaBoy, 16, several reports said.

In addition to murder, manslaughter, and attempted murder charges, Cedeno, who lives in The Bronx, also faces one count of attempted manslaughter, two counts of assault, and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.

The prime accused, an 18-year-old, was arrested from the site of incident.

The suspect, armed with a three-inch switchblade, walked out of the the classroom after the stabbing and handed the weapon to a guidance counselor, Boyce said.

'There were arguments going on for two weeks into the school year.

"I have been a staunch opponent of age-inappropriate co-locations throughout my tenure as borough president", said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz in a statement.

As a result of the attack, the building was put on lockdown and many students were put into a state of fear. But it's the family of Matthew McCree that's paying the price.

Jaffe said that it was determined that Urban Assembly did not need metal detectors, noting that roughly 75 to 78 schools in the city have "some type of scanning".

But he said the school did not have any official complaint about bullying between the boys.

"I tried to called the school". The school did not have metal detectors, though wands and detectors were brought in Thursday morning for random screenings.

The father rushed to the school, where he saw his daughter, a kindergartener, through a window waving to him.
